Smoked Filled Fagottino Scamorza DeMagi
Scamorza is spun-paste cheese like mozzarella, only drier, made with whole pasteurized cow milk. These “bundles” or fagottini are of scamorza spun-paste, first rolled into a sheet, cut into “panzerotti” (a small version of calzone)and stuffed with a variety of ingredients such as ham, stuffed olives and mushrooms. After they have been cooled they are smoked to acquire a distinctive smoky aroma and flavour. For best results, we recommend serving warm, either warming them up in the oven, microwave or in a pan, as long as it is warm.
